We have decided to use the IRC service, and the servers at irc.furnet.org, as the VCL's official chat service.
Please read the VCL IRC channel guidelines before participating.
To connect, either:
- Use your own IRC program, and connect to irc.furnet.org port 6667 channel #VCL, or
- If you have a IRC program, and your browser supports it, click irc://irc.furnet.org:6667/vcl
Sometimes participants connect, but idle a lot. If you jump into the chat for quick help, say hello, but wait 5 minutes or so for someone to respond. If noone does, just try later. Remember, not everyone is in the same timezone as you.
 Don't have an IRC client?
Firefox users may wish to try ChatZilla, a rudimentary but functional IRC plugin.
Windows users can choose from:
or others (Good list here: List of Windows IRC clients )
Linux users, you can choose from:
(Most linux distros tend to come with an IRC client already installed...)
